    2.) The awesome local clothing stores

  2. Meridith

    I’ve been here for the 8 years and the first thing that I love about Asheville is the enormous new, local business growth that has taken place (which includes Minx). The second is the ability to NOT be a part of just one group–meaning you can fit in anywhere with anyone. And third, well that would have to be just how stunningly beautiful this town really is–from the mountains, to the leaves, to people watching on Lexington–this place is the most beautiful town I’ve ever lived in.

In Asheville there is always the feeling of home, even when your not from here. People travel from all over the world just to see what I do everyday. There is never a dull moment here in Asheville. This city is full of local musicians playing thier hearts out. Let’s not forget that we have some of the best food. For example, 12 bones bbq to fine dining at the Grove Park Inn. We are the best city ever!
